Six of the Best - Summer Hats

I'm very excited about this weekend; I'm spending it with two of my gorgeous girlfriends and we will mainly be drinking champagne and spending our time shopping - what more could a girl ask for!

On my shopping list is a new summer hat.  With my recent house move, I looked at the ones I have and whilst for the most part they will keep the sun off my head, they are looking dated.  One of the best ways to keep your look modern, is to keep your accessories bang up to date!

I also saw on Instagram Nicole Scherzinger, who was looking fabulous in a sun hat on a girlie beach weekend to celebrate her birthday -  don't you think she looks fab??!

Women - In life, in business and in style!

Three years ago Kelly agreed to be one my first interviewees for my feature Women - In life, in business and in style!   My readers have asked for this feature to come back, and I thought there is no better way to start than to invite Kelly to see how life is now…

It's been a couple of years since our last catch up on the blog - any major life changes since then? 
Yes, It's been a hectic but an amazing 3 years. I moved into a new house last year, me and Andrew (my husband) have been promoted at work and I ran my first half marathon in March.

Do you and Andrew still try to have good quality time to achieve work/life balance?
Definitely, it's even more important now that we both have busy jobs to have that work/life balance. 

What did you do on your last date night? 
We went to see a band that I love called The Shires. (You must watch them on YouTube. They are amazing).

What do you do when you have "me time"? 
I love to sit down, without the tv on, and read a good book. I love the peace and quiet!

How would you describe your style? 
I would say my style is quite simple and sophisticated. 

Who's your style icon and why? 
Reese Witherspoon. She has a classic yet simple style and demonstrates how less is more.

Apart from your mobile, purse and keys - what three must-haves should be in your handbag?

  1. Make-up bag
  2. Perfume
  3. Sunglasses

What book are you currently reading?
Perfect Match by Katie Forde

What's the one styling or shopping tip you would love to pass on to Loved by Lizzi readers?

Dog or cat? Dog
London or Paris? London
